Everything with a Purpose-5

Proverbs 16:4 “GOD made everything with a…purpose…” (MSG)
He worked in a factory for some time, before joining the military. He fought during the second world war as a bombardier aboard a fighter jet. After his military duties, he became an insurance salesman but he kept moving from job to job, became a serious alcoholic and decided to commit suicide out of frustration.
But just before he took his own life, he stumbled into a library out of boredom. He went through several volumes of self-help and motivational books, selected some titles and began reading. Mandino followed his visit to the library with more visits to many other libraries around the United States. He read hundreds of books that dealt with success and Motivation.
He eventally came across the Book of books, the Bible and his life changed radically. He discovered his purpose and in no time the grip of alcoholism was broken over his life and he became focused.
In a library in Concord, New Hampshire, he found W. Clement Stone’s classic, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, a book that changed Mandino for the better. He later became a successful writer and speaker. He said, his works were inspired by the Bible and influenced by Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, and Emmet Fox. He was inducted into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame.
He wrote the bestselling book “The Greatest Salesman in the World”. His books have sold over 50 million copies and have been translated into over twenty-five different languages.
Can you imagine if Mandino had died on one of those days when he was seriously drunk or even commited suicide? He would have gone to the grave with over 50 million copies of his great books!
Here is the quotation: “I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth I will apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.”Og Mandino (1923-1996)
I want you to ask yourself the most important question on earth,  “Why am I here?”
